New kids’ book ‘Hooray for She, He, Ze, and They!’ explores gender euphoria amid LGBTQ+ book bans

Author: Christopher Wiggins

As communities across the country grapple with the growing number of book bans and restrictions on discussions of gender identity and sexual orientation in schools, particularly in Republican-controlled states, Lindz Amer’s Hooray for She, He, Ze, and They! What Are Your Pronouns?

Amer pointed out the impact of book bans and restrictive educational policies on the LGBTQ+ community. “It’s happening in every artistic medium, every artistic space, and whether or not the government is involved, it’s moot at this point because this is the reaction that I get in every space that I’m in,” Amer noted.

Amer acknowledges that the book will likely be banned in red states like Florida. Yet, despite these challenges, Amer’s book is an educational beacon. Amer advises educators and librarians to be courageous and push against these barriers.

“You have to be a little bit brave,” they urged. “You have to be a little bit courageous.”

Hooray for She, He, Ze, and They! What Are Your Pronouns? is available on February 27.
